Fresh faces needed for 2018 Election Cycle – Candidate Filing Requirements.

2018.elections.pngDue to high levels of corruption and the need to disrupt organized schemes in Maryland, We need fresh candidates to run for open seats across the state and especially in Prince George’s County.  We intend to support incumbents who have good record and new faces with commitment to good governance.

Otherwise, candidates not involved in bribery and other violations for personal gain will be supported.  Please join us as we make plans and strategies on bringing down the corrupt establishment. For those interested in running for public office, listed below are the requirements.
